we're in kansas..........

hello from Wichita! man what a week. I got all of my class's papers returned Tuesday, had a great class, and then swam and worked out at gym and went home to work in the yard. Wednesday yard work and then over to S buddy who was off this week. pool time!  Thursday class again and then all Thursday night I got ready for this trip.  left my house at 7 am this morning to pick up Betty and then we met the club and got on the bus to Wichita. left by 8am and stopped in Perry at Braums to pick some people up and have breakfast.  next we went up to the Bartlett aboretum of Belle Plaine just south of Wichita. and hey I got to meet a founding member of Dixie Chicks that owns it now.  Someone happened to tell me that by the way or I never would have known. ha
we drove over to Peck Kansas for lunch at Boudreaux Burger Barn, and it was sort of weird how across from the register before you walked down the hall to the bathroom there was a baby play pen with a 3 year old kid in there just laying on its back. just some kid in a little cage.
anyway, we came into Wichita and stopped off at Tree Tops nursery, then to the hotel, got all our rooms and such, met back at 6 on the bus to the Hanger One steak house. for dinner then came back to the hotel for a program, which was really awful and boring, a guy talking about all the millions donated for the Botanica gardens in Wichits blah blah.  going to sleep super comfy in my hotel bed tonight and then we tour gardens the rest of the weekend.
hope everyone is enjoying summer.

from shopping a few weeks ago....

I think I posted about running by the outlet mall a while back. here's the "haul" a few marked down items that give me a few new things to wear around this summer. works for me! above shows the Jcrew outlet purchases. 2 button up short sleeves and one long. the print shirt I got on a whim only because it fit well and seemed the thing to wear to some outdoor summer event? the 2 tshirts fit just right and then the shorts were $20 can't go wrong with that.
Below shows a photo of 2 shirts from Lucky Star, I like their sort of basic colors and style, a henly collared short sleeve that fits perfectly and then a short sleeve shirt for, yup, July 4th. :) it's also super comfy.  I actually got 3 pairs of swim shorts but am already swimming in one of them, $10 each so I got 3 since I'm always leaving them behind at the gym.

Now let's get serious, Norse Projects my favorite! below shows what arrived in the mail today. I had wanted this shirt since early Spring but was being disciplined.  I got an email last Friday about their summer markdowns and there it was marked down! woo hoo. and 2 pairs of socks. i can't tell you how perfectly this shirt fits me and how super comfortable the light weave cotton feels. the photo looked more grey online but I'm happy with the khaki and navy in the shirt. from Denmark and yeah I had to pay $20 shipping but man I'm in love already....
